The foundation of any great community is devoted relationships. These relationships require both time to grow and a common desire to know Christ more. (Proverbs 27:17, Hebrews 10:25 )
As we learn to die to selfish ambition and live for Jesus Christ, we desire to have our hearts softened so they resemble that of Christ. (Philippians 2:4-8, Micah 6:8)
We've been called to go out into our community and into world, learning to love all of God’s creation with a Christ-like love as we open our hands to serve all those in it. (Matthew 22:37-40, Jeremiah 29:4-7)
Our vision is to live as the family of God together, demonstrating and proclaiming the gospel of grace to one another, our town, and the world.
First, this means loving God and loving others in the midst of life’s difficult and joyous seasons. Secondly, it means growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Finally, it means serving the town God has called us to and beyond.
